Debbie Sharp alerted us as follows ....
Here is another challenge for you. We have just learned that the amount of lighting at the new interchange at Wreckers Corner will be similar to the Byron one. This means the deterioration of our beautiful night sky, to say nothing of the disturbance to the nocturnal animals.
We had not been informed of this, in all the community consultations there has been no mention of lighting and the visual impact that it would have. Since I put two and two together on this and asked about lighting I have been given the old run around, (3 weeks and no lighting plan as promised). They look ready to go soon as there is a pile of cable at the bottom of the hill.
This seems like incredible overkill for Tyagarah, and will ruin our country atmosphere and night sky. The glow from Byron Interchange is visible from Tyagarah, can you imagine what it will be like?
What can we do in order to change/stall this plan? We don't have a lot of time and cannot expect much sympathy from the RTA. Do we need a meeting soon, and is there an Andersons Hill group as they too will be affected and the more objection the stronger our case.
